Salam, some time ago I started extracting hadiths that belong to the Collection of Imam al-Bukhari out of a website to use it for a smartphone app I was planning. I also thought
why not use that to also generate some pdf’s out of it. So thats what I have done here. There is one pdf containing all the books from Sahih al-Bukhari and there is also one
pdf for each book of the collection. It only includes the hadith in the english translation, also there is the reference for each hadith (Hadith number of total collection & hadith number in that specific book).
When you donwload the pdf you will be able to search through the document to find the hadiths that contain the word or exact phrase you are looking for.
In sha Allah someone will benefit out of this.
Anyway if you have any remarks or have found something that needs to be corrected, let me know.
(btw. maybe you should click on the download links when you are on wifi as the complete edition is like 13mb and the individual books are like 2mb each)
واصبر وما صبرك إلا بالله “And be patient for your patience is but by Allah…” [an-Nahl 16:127]
واصبر لحكم ربك ” Await in patience the command of your Lord…” [at-tur 52:48].
ولا تهنوا ولا تحزنوا “So lose not heart nor despair…” [Al ‘Imran 3:139].
أولئك يؤتون أجرهم مرتين بما صبروا “These shall be granted their reward twice, because they are steadfast…” [al-Qasas 28:54].
إنما يوفى الصابرون أجرهم بغير حساب “…Indeed, the patient will be given their reward without account.” [az-Zumar 39:10]. (the reward for every deed is known except patience!)
وجعلنا منهم أئمة يهدون بأمرنا لما صبروا وكانوا بآياتنا يوقنون “And We made from among them leaders guiding by Our command when they were patient and [when] they were certain of Our signs. “ [as-Sajdah 32:24]. (patience is a prequisite for leadership in religion!)
و اصبروا إن الله مع الصابرين “…and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” [al-Anfal 8:46]. (patience earns the companionship of Allah)
واستعينوا بالصبر والصلاة “And seek assistance through patience and prayer…” [al-Baqarah 2:45].
والملائكة يدخلون عليهم من كل باب سلام عليكم بما صبرتم فنعم عقبى الدار “…And the angels will enter upon them from every gate, [saying],”Peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home.” [ar-Ra’d 13:23-24].
إلا الذين صبروا وعملوا الصالحات أولئك لهم مغفرة وأجر كبير “Except for those who are patient and do righteous deeds; those will have forgiveness and great reward.” [Hud 11:11].
ولمن صبر وغفر إن ذلك لمن عزم الأمور “And whoever is patient and forgives – indeed, that is of the matters [requiring] determination” [ash-Shura 42:43] (Allah has made patience a standard for courage and determination in ones affairs)
وكأين من نبي قاتل معه ربيون كثير فما وهنوا لما أصابهم في سبيل الله وما ضعفوا وما استكانوا والله يحب الصابرين ” And how many a prophet [fought and] with him fought many religious scholars. But they never lost assurance due to what afflicted them in the cause of Allah , nor did they weaken or submit. And Allah loves the patient.” [Al ‘Imran 3:146]. ( its a condition of his love)
وما يلقاها إلا الذين صبروا وما يلقاها إلا ذو حظ عظيم “But none is granted it except those who are patient, and none is granted it except one having a great portion [of good].” [Fussilat 41:35].
ألم تر أن الفلك تجري في البحر بنعمة الله ليريكم من آياته إن في ذلك لآيات لكل صبار شكور “Do you not see that ships sail through the sea by the favor of Allah that He may show you of His signs? Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful.” [Luqman 31:31].
ومن آياته الجوار في البحر كالأعلام إن يشأ يسكن الريح فيظللن رواكد على ظهره إن في ذلك لآيات لكل صبار شكور ” And of His signs are the ships in the sea, like mountains. If He willed, He could still the wind, and they would remain motionless on its surface. Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful” [ash-Shura 42:32-33].
No one likes to fall. And few people would ever choose to drown. But in struggling through the ocean of this life, sometimes it’s so hard not to let the world in. Sometimes the ocean does enter us. The dunya does seep into our hearts.
And like the water that breaks the boat, when dunya enters, it shatters our heart. It shatters the boat. Recently, I was reminded of what a broken boat looks like, of what happens when you let everything in. I was reminded because I saw someone, just like me, fall in love too much with this life and seek to be filled by the creation. So the ocean of dunya shattered her boat, as it had shattered mine, and she fell out into the water. But she stayed down too long, and didn’t know how to come back up or what to hold on to.
So she drowned.
If you allow dunya to own your heart, like the ocean that owns the boat, it will take over. You will sink down to the depths of the sea. You will touch the ocean floor. And you will feel as though you were at your lowest point. Entrapped by your sins and the love of this life, you will feel broken. Surrounded by darkness. That’s the amazing thing about the floor of the ocean. No light reaches it.
But, this dark place is not the end. Remember that the darkness of night precedes the dawn. And as long as your heart still beats, this is not the death of it. You don’t have to die here. Sometimes, the ocean floor is only a stop on the journey. And it is when you are at this lowest point, that you are faced with a choice. You can stay there at the bottom, until you drown. Or you can gather pearls and rise back up—stronger from the swim, and richer from the jewels.
If you seek Him, God can raise you up, and replace the darkness of the ocean, with the light of His sun. He can transform what was once your greatest weakness into your greatest strength, and a means of growth, purification and redemption. Know that transformation sometimes begins with a fall. So never curse the fall. The ground is where humility lives. Take it. Learn it. Breathe it in. And then come back stronger, humbler and more aware of your need for Him. Come back having seen your own nothingness and His greatness. Know that if you have seen that Reality, you have seen much. For the one who is truly deceived is the one who sees his own self—but not Him. Deprived is the one who has never witnessed his own desperate need for God. Reliant on his own means, he forgets that the means, his own soul, and everything else in existence are His creation.
Seek God to bring you back up, for when He does, He will rebuild your ship. The heart that you thought was forever damaged will be mended. What was shattered will be whole again. Know that only He can do this. Seek Him.
And when He saves you, beg forgiveness for the fall, feel remorse over it—but not despair. As Ibn ul Qayyim (ra) has said: “Satan rejoiced when Adam (peace be upon him) came out of Paradise, but he did not know that when a diver sinks into the sea, he collects pearls and then rises again.”
There is a powerful and amazing thing about tawbah (repentance) and turning back to Allah (swt). We are told that it is a polish for the heart. What’s amazing about a polish is that it doesn’t just clean. It makes the object that is polished even shinier than it was before it got dirty. If you come back to God, seek His forgiveness, and refocus your life and heart on Him, you have the potential to be even richer than if you’d never fallen at all. Sometimes falling and coming back up gives you wisdom and humility that you may never otherwise have had. Ibn ul Qayyim (ra) writes:
“One of the Salaf (Pious Predecessors) said: “Indeed a servant commits a sin by which he enters Paradise; and another does a good deed by which he enters the Fire.” It was asked: How is that? So he replied: “The one who committed the sin, constantly thinks about it; which causes him to fear it, regret it, weep over it and feel ashamed in front of his Lord—the Most High—due to it. He stands before Allah, broken-hearted and with his head lowered in humility. So this sin is more beneficial to him than doing many acts of obedience, since it caused him to have humility and humbleness—which leads to the servant’s happiness and success—to the extent that this sin becomes the cause for him entering Paradise. As for the doer of good, then he does not consider this good a favor from his Lord upon him. Rather, he becomes arrogant and amazed with himself, saying: I have achieved such and such, and such and such. So this further increases him in self-adulation, pride and arrogance—such that this becomes the cause for his destruction.”
Allah (swt) reminds us in the Qur’an to never lose hope. He says: “Say, ‘O My servants who have transgressed against their souls [by sinning], despair not of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful,’” (39:53).
And so, this is a call to all those who have become enslaved by the tyranny of the self, imprisoned in the dungeon of the nafs (self) and desires. It is a call to all those who have entered the ocean of dunya, who have sunk into its depths, and become trapped by its crushing waves. Rise up. Rise up to the air, to the Real world above the prison of the ocean. Rise up to your freedom. Rise up and come back to life. Leave the death of your soul behind you. Your heart can still live and be stronger and purer than it ever was. Does not the polish of tawbah remake the heart even more beautiful than it was? Remove the veil you have sewn with your sins. Remove the veil between you and Life, between you and Freedom, between you and Light—between you and God. Remove the veil and rise up. Come back to yourself. Come back to where you began. Come back Home. Know that when all the other doors have shut in your face, there is One that is always open. Always. Seek it. Seek Him and He will guide you through the waves of the cruel ocean, into the mercy of the sun.
This world cannot break you—unless you give it permission. And it cannot own you unless you hand it the keys – unless you give it your heart. And so, if you have handed those keys to dunya for a while—take them back. This isn’t the End. You don’t have to die here. Reclaim your heart and place it with its rightful owner:
Yasmin Mogahed, excerpt from “Reclaim Your Heart”
And He it is Who sends down water from the cloud, then We bring forth with it buds of all (plants), then We bring forth from it green (foliage) from which We produce grain piled up (in the ear); and of the palm-tree, of the sheaths of it, come forth clusters (of dates) within reach, and gardens of grapes and olives and pomegranates, alike and unlike; behold the fruit of it when it yields the fruit and the ripening of it; most surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.
And they make the jinn associates with Allah, while He created them, and they falsely attribute to Him sons and daughters without knowledge; glory be to Him, and highly exalted is He above what they ascribe (to Him).
They were not doing it for Allah but for hatred. What they did has nothing to do with the Quran. Please don't confuse the two.
Quotes directly translated from the Quran:
Quran (2:244) - “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”
Quran (3:56) - “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in
this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”
Quran (3:151) - “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”
Quran (5:33) - “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and
strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
- “Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people.”
Quran (9:29) - “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge
the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
Quran (9:30) - “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”
Sounds pretty damn hateful to me. Shut up with your fucking bullshit and wake up.
The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to say, “O Allah! I seek refuge with You from helplessness, laziness, cowardice and feeble old age; I seek refuge with You from afflictions of life and death and seek refuge with You from the punishment in the grave.
Sahih al-Bukhari, Fighting for the Cause of Allah, Book 56, Hadith 39
And why should we not rely upon Allah while He has guided us to our [good] ways. And we will surely be patient against whatever harm you should cause us. And upon Allah let those who would rely [indeed] rely.
After the recent terrorist attacks Im finding it increasingly harder to be okay with Islam
The media feeds you with such lies I don’t blame you. I would have blamed you if you believed the media without doing your own research, but you sending me this ask is a way for you to gain knowledge, is it not? I’m proud of you for reaching out to me before you start hating us.
The media is this most biased source of information ever. Please do not be conditioned into what the media wants you to be brainwashed into.
What such terrorist groups represents, first of all, are not Islamic. Far from Islam are these twats. I was actually reading the Quran this morning and came across the verse:
“if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.” [Quran 5:32]
Oh look! There is a verse for terrorist groups like ISIS as well! :
“And make not Allah’s (Name) an excuse in your oaths against your doing good and acting piously, and making peace among mankind. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower (i.e. do not swear much and if you have sworn against doing something good then give an expiation for the oath and do good).” [Quran 2:224] I.E.,: DO NOT USE ALLAH’S NAME TO DO SHAMEFUL ACTS [SUCH AS KILLING].
“There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.” [Quran 2:256] AKA: DO NOT FORCE PEOPLE INTO ISLAM
The conditions of Muslims setting war is set by a verse in sūrat l-baqarah. This verse explains that war is only acceptable if it is for oppressed people. Allah also says to resort to peace if the other side does as well -
“And fight in the cause of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits. And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from where they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque (in Makkah) until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the reward of the unbelievers. But if they desist, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.“ [Quran 2:190-192]
“Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, Allah is Able to give them (believers) victory” [Quran 22:39]
”The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah: for (Allah) loves not those who do wrong. But indeed if any do help and defend themselves after a wrong (done) to them, against such there is no cause of blame. The blame is only against those who oppress men and insolently transgress beyond bounds through the land, defying right and justice: for such there will be a grievous penalty. And whoever is patient and forgiving, these most surely are actions due to courage.“ [Quran 42:40-43]
SO IN CONCLUSION, ISIS AND OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS DO NOT REPRESENT ISLAM. THE QURAN AND TIME AND TIME SAYS FIGHT IF THEY START IT (YOU ARE BEING OPPRESSED) BUT GO TO PEACE IF THEY DO AS WELL.
Also, let me drop one last verse from the Quran:
“And do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites but do not harm them, and rely upon Allah. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.” [33:48]
What ISIS and others are doing, well have fun in hell you fools. Using Allah’s glorified name to carry out your horrific acts, spoiling the name Islam and Allah, woe and curses be to them!
Other facts -
Did you know after 9/11 there was a spike in conversions to Islam because people picked up the Quran in interest to see how terrible Islam is but found love, peace, and mercy instead?
Did you know that those who were held captive by ISIS and escaped said that they did not even have a Quran, they did not pray the 5 daily prayers, they would get drunk, and they raped and abused. Obviously, they are far from Islam as these are far from the teachings of Islam.
Please do not believe the media, they only want for you to hate us. Divide and conquer, you’ve probably learned that in history class.
Again, thank you for reaching out before being absorbed in judgments.
A man devoted himself in the worship of Allah for 50 years, so Allah favoured him: ‘I have forgiven you.’
The main said: ‘My Lord, what did you forgive? I never committed a sin.’
Allah caused a pain in his neck, as a result of which he was unable to sleep or pray. Then it stopped, and he was able to sleep. After that an angel visited him and the man complained to him about the suffering he went through in the pain of his neck. The angel said: ‘Your Lord says:
‘Your worship of 50 years is equal to the relief of the pain in your neck.’’
Hardships that bring us closer to Allah are a blessing in disguise. Allah causes bad things to happen to good people, in order that a greater good come to them in the long run. And “Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning” [al-Zumar 39:10] Allah has promised that if we are sincere in faith and do righteous good deeds, He will give us best of life in this world and reward accordingly in the hereafter. “Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)” [al-Nahl 16:97] We ask Allah to relieve your suffering or hardship you are going through and reward you abundantly for your patience. Ameen.
I see all these people coming up with theories about Yousef liking Even and vice versa but I think it’s far more simple:
Even did kissed Mikael but it was Yousef the one who dissed Even and eventually led to Even’s suicide attempt…all those thoughts about the Quran could have come from Yousef and not Mikael. Maybe Yousef pretended to be mikael and posted all those things about the Quran and how it can save you,because he himself believed he needed to be cured of the same acts and thoughts.
Yousef might be bisexual and still learning how to deal with that, he might have liked Mikael (not even). He is no longer religious because of it, he saw what it did to Even, so it was just easier to leave religion, he feels he cannot be part of Allah but still acts within the rules “ The thing is not to believe in Allah but live like you believe in Allah” (I butchered the quote I know). Yousef in his own ways is still religious but not as drastic as he may used to be, but he is afraid his past will catch up to him.
Truth be told I wholeheartedly think he cares for Sana, he likes her, he wants to tell her everything but he fears Sana will neglect him for his past; he probably feels she unfriended him just cause he doesn’t believe in Allah, imagine if she knew the rest.
At this point I don’t care what went down with Even at Bakka…I only want Sana to RISE and destroy Sara and the pepsi-max gang.
Also; don’t be asses to Elias…he was protecting his friends, just like Sana does; it’s a family thing just remember Sana fighting for Eva in season 1
The Prophet said, “It is a bad thing that some of you say, ‘I have forgotten such-and-such verse of the Qur’an,’ for indeed, he has been caused (by Allah) to forget it. So you must keep on reciting the Qur’an because it escapes from the hearts of men faster than camel do.”
Sahih Bukhari : Book 61: Virtues of the Qur’an
Volume 6, Book 61, Number 550
be careful of Shaytaan’s trap of being able to target the worst sin with the best of people; be careful when he attacks the Sunni with an act of shirk, that you do not even realize; remember why you bought those books; remember why you stacked those bookshelves; remember why you built your library; remember why you read those books; to get closer to Allah عز و جل; this is your act of worship; be careful when shaytaan fools you into committing shirk by way of it; why did you buy those books? why did you read them? was it not to please Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ by way of it? why do you pray? why did you learn how to pray? is it not your act of worship you do to obey your Lord by way of it? would you post a picture of you praying on social media? yet you post your library on it…books you bought and collected over the years to get closer to your Lord, now up for display for the world to see your piety; fear Allah; don’t let the Shaytaan destroy the one upon Tawheed with the opposite of Tawheed; don’t let your enemy get the best of you by way of your good deeds.
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Almighty Allah says, `I am the One Who is most free from want of partners. He who does a thing for the sake of someone else beside Me, I discard him and his polytheism..” [Muslim] [Riyad as-Saliheen #1616]
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saying, “The first to be judged on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who had died as a martyr. He will be brought forward. Allah will remind him of the favours He had bestowed upon him and the man will acknowledge them. Then He will ask him: `What did you do to express gratitude for it?’ The man will reply: `I fought for Your Cause till I was martyred.’ Allah will say: `You have lied. You fought so that people might call you courageous; and they have done so.’ Command will then be issued about him and he will be dragged on his face and thrown into Hell. Next a man who had acquired and imparted knowledge and read the Qur’an will be brought forward, Allah will remind him of the favours He had bestowed upon him and the man will acknowledge them. Then He will ask him: `What did you do to express gratitude for it?’ The man will reply: `I acquired knowledge and taught it, and read the Qur’an for Your sake.’ Allah will say to him: `You have lied. You acquired knowledge so that people might call you a learned (man), and you read the Qur’an so that they might call you a reciter, and they have done so.’ Command will then be issued about him, and he will be dragged on his face and thrown into Hell. Next a man whom Allah had made affluent and to whom Allah had given plenty of wealth, will be brought forward, Allah will remind him of the favours He had bestowed upon him and the man will acknowledge them. He will ask him: `What did you do to express gratitude for it?’ The man will reply: `I did not neglect any of the ways You liked wealth to be spend liberally for Your sake’. Allah will say to him: `You have lied. You did it so that people might call you generous, and they have done so.’ Command will then be issued about him and he will be dragged on his face and thrown into Hell.” [Muslim]. [Riyad as-Saliheen #1617]
Jundub (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “He who so acts to show off, Allah will disgrace him on the Day of Resurrection, and he who does good deeds so that people (may hold him in high esteem), Allah will expose his hidden evil intentions before the people on the Day of Resurrection.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. Riyad as-Saliheen #1619]
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “A person who acquires (religious) knowledge, which is (normally) acquired to gain the Pleasure of Allah, (for the sole reason) to secure worldly comforts will not even smell the fragrance of Jannah on the Day of Resurrection (i.e., will not enter Jannah).” [Abu Dawud]. Riyad as-Saliheen #1620]
Assalamualaikum! I had a doubt about a hadith on friday, which says Allah will answer any duaa on friday, so seek the hour after asr. Can you elaborate on what an hour after asr means? Does it mean the hour before maghrib begins? I have been having doubts about this, sorry lol Im kinda dumb. Jazakallah khair!
Wa Alaikum Salam, Sister ♥
You are smart for asking this question, for now that you did, you will in shaa Allah know the answer, and be more educated and therefore wiser! It is the ones who do not seek the knowledge or who do not want to know who are intellectually at loss.
May Allah SWT increase our knowledge and not make us lazy or ashamed to ask, Ameen ♥
The Hadith which you may be referring to is the following one:
“On Friday there is an hour when, if a Muslims happens to pray at that time and ask Allah for something good, He will give it to him.” (Narrated from Abu-Hurayrah: [Al-Bukhaari (5295) and Muslim (852)])
There are many views about when this hour is, let us explore them ♥
1. Between the time when the imam sits down, until the end of prayer ♥
Specifying Hadith: Abu Burdah ibn Abi Moosa al-Ash’ari who said: ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar said to me: Did you hear your father narrating from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) concerning the (special) hour on Friday? I said: Yes I heard him say: I heard the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) say: “It is between the time when the imam sits down, until the prayer is over.” (Saheeh Muslim)
2. When the Iqaamah for prayer is given, until the prayer ends ♥
Specifying Hadith: Al-Tirmidhi (490) and Ibn Maajah (1138) narrated from Katheer ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn ‘Awf al-Muzani from his father from his grandfather that the Prophet (pbuh) said: “On Friday there is an hour of the day during which no person asks Allah for something but He will give it to him.” It was said: “When is that time?” He said, “When the iqaamah for prayer is given, until the prayer ends.” (Shaykh al-Albaani said: It is da’eef jiddan [very weak])
3. After Asr (an hour before Magrib) ♥
Specifying Hadith A: Abu Dawood (1048) and al-Nasaa’i (1389) narrated from Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah that the Messenger ofAllah (pbuh) said: “Friday is twelve hours in which there is no Muslim who asks Allah for something but He will give it to him, so seek the last hour after ‘Asr.” (Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani)
Specifying Hadith B: ‘Abd-Allah said: The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) pointed to me, saying, “Or some part of an hour.” I said: You are right, or some part of an hour. I said: What time is that? He said: “It is the last hours of the day.” I said: It is not the time of the prayer? He said, “Indeed, when a believing slave prays and then sits with nothing but the prayer keeping him, he is still in a state of prayer.” (Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani)
So how do we understand when these times are? The first hadith and second hadith are self-explanatory in the times of which it is said to be the hour. The 3rd hadith is a little bit more confusing to understand due to our minds being programmed to evaluate time via the Gregorian Calendar methods.
In Islam, a new day begins with the Wakt of Magrib (not Fajr), therefore when the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) talks about the ‘last hour of the day’, he is referring to the last hour before the wakt of Magrib. So, if you live in a country where the adthaan for Magrib goes off at 6:30, deduct one hour from that, and that hour till Magrib is the probable hour which the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is referring to. Therefore in the example, the hour starts from 5:30 to 6:30 ♥
The actual hour in this case will depend on you time-zone and season ♥
Why are there so many hours? Why can’t there just a specific one? Maybe it is about hunting the hour down, and praying at all the hour stations, or just one, with the intention of getting closer to Allah SWT and having our prayers answered by Him ♥ Maybe waiting so sincerely for the hour and praying with such devotion at that time, is what will cause Allah SWT to feel mercy towards us and give us our Dua’s in shaa Allah ♥ If you really want your Dua to be answered, you would act accordingly, right? ♥ Maybe it may just be that time which, when a Muslim in the correct conditions and the correct mind-frame prayers, will have his/her prayers answered, in shaa Allah ♥
I hope I have answered your question in shaa Allah, if you are confused about something in the answer above, would like something explained again, or would like to ask another question, please do not hesitate in shaa Allah ♥
